Prepare middle schoolers for lifelong success with Invention Project

– My experience with
Invention Project this week has been amazing. I get to develop
relationships with the kids and I get to learn about how they think, how they approach a problem and see how the kids learn
how to work together. – They actually really enjoy
putting the stuff together to the prototypes and being creative. – You give that person your money and then you stick your
change back in there, ’cause, case you need your wallet- – I’ve learned about business. We learned about starting a company, how you can share-hold
it with other people and then how would they get that money, like angel investors. – I’ve learned about teamwork and how working with a team
allows you to get a lot more done than what you would
normally be able to do. – Put the battery pack
in the charging port and wait a couple seconds and then, it’ll start to go.
(mechanical noises) – I’ve learned a lot about the hands-on through Invention Project. Learned to be a better mediator and to let them struggle and sometimes, that’s
when they learn the most. – The implementation was very simple. Once you get the outline
of it, it’s laid out in the order of the activities,
which made it nice for me. – I like working with my group. I like building many different inventions and I enjoy just seeing
other people’s inventions. – I would tell somebody
that wants to bring it to the district that it
really is a great opportunity for the kids to get that
real world application, especially in science,
you’re teaching kids careers that don’t even exist yet, so this is developing
those critical thinkers that we’re really pushing for
and it gives them that uplift.
